Good question... how do you reliably find available electric car charging points near you when you’re travelling around, in a new city (or country) or just running low on juice? When you’re not near home or your usual charging station, it can add unnecessary stress to your journey when you need to plug in and recharge.
Having trouble finding the nearest EV charging point can bring on ‘charge anxiety’, the bane of every EV owner’s life. And it’s not just finding the nearest one that’s the problem either.
We’ve all rolled up to a charge point at some time or another to find it’s broken or already in use. Then you’re back to square one again, trying to find the next (hopefully) available electric car charging point near you... making you late for your appointment/meeting/coffee/gym class etc.
Then, despite having what feels like a hundred different EV charging apps downloaded on your phone, they’ll only direct you to a charging point nearby if it’s owned by one of the networks you’ve signed up to. And sometimes, an app can take you there, but without a pre-paid RFID for that provider, you’re unlikely to be able to charge up anyway... as most of them don’t allow you to pay as you go.
Not just your nearest either, but possibly your cheapest too.
